Dream Catcher – this is an American Indian talisman, which scares away evil spirits, bad dreams and nightmares. The dream catcher “filters” the dreams and passes only the good and pleasant ones. The evil and bad dreams stay in the web to disappear with the first sun lights of the day.
I wonder if we will be able to catch the good dreams this night?
We used empty takeaway pizza boxes to make the main ring of the dream catcher (the cardboard they are made of is very pleasant for this kind of job). Well, we used that part that was not greasy. Two different plates aided us draw the circle.
You need to have two similar rings to make the base thicker. You will coil the thread on it.
Coil the thread carefully, covering the entire ring and make a knot at the back.
The process of coiling is very easy – you just need to follow the sequence of the coil. For a genuine dream catcher coil clockwise.
There it is! It took us only a couple of minutes to spin this beautiful web.
The feathers – we used the rest of the pizza box – that part where the sides fold is perfect to make a feather.
A few coloured beads are always welcome.
